Microplastics are probably polluting every lake and river in Britain, scientists have warned, after the first national survey found particles in all samples.

But even the comparatively remote Loch Lomond had 2.4 particles per litre, while Ullswater in the Lake District contained 29.5 shards of microplastic in the same volume of water.
